HP says their new PavilionAero13 with up to 10.5 hours battery life is the company’s lightest consumer laptop at less than one kilogram, and the first Pavilion laptop to feature a full magnesium-aluminum chassis and a 4-sided narrow bezel. Available in Pale Rose Gold, Warm Gold, Ceramic White, and Natural Silver.

It is the first Pavilion laptop with 2.5k resolution (2304 × 1296) and 90% screen-to-body ratio and a 16:10 aspect ratio which gives 10% more vertical screen viewing (which means less scrolling needed). The screen can put out up to 400 nits of brightness and has a 100% sRGB wide color palette.
The Pavilions screens are driven by the GPU in the AMD APU.

In addition to a big bright screen, the laptops have a blur light filter.

With average screen time exceeding 10 hours per day on average, we are all taking in large amounts of high-energy visible blue light. This exposure can lead to headaches, sore/dry eyes, blurred vision, and prolonged exposure over time could even cause retina damage. High-energy visible (HEV) blue light has been identified as a contributor to these effects due to the sensitivity of the human eye, compounded by the high energy it carries.

HP has extended the blue light filtering to a new line of monitors too.
Expanding the HP’s Eyesafe Certified Monitor, HP’s Series13. M line includes a 24-and 27-inch display.

Eyesafe Display manages light energy at the source – selectively reducing blue light and dispersing across the light spectrum.
